Centuries away from the traditional conservatory, a completely new generation of glass buildings make architecturally exciting additions to our houses and gardens - and can also change the way we live.

The Caulfield Company’s intelligent glass buildings blur the boundaries between inside and out through contemporary architecture, advanced engineering and sophisticated climate control.  They are perfectly in tune with one of the biggest trends in modern living… the outdoor kitchen, which has evolved from a simple barbeque into a completely new indoor/outdoor living space with a fully equipped kitchen.

Freestanding or built as an extension, The Caulfield Company’s Winter Garden concept is a bespoke design that can be built for use as anything from a sitting room, party zone or kitchen/dining room to a home office or pool house.  Ultra-tall bi-fold doors open to the garden on all sides, whilst electronically-controlled awnings give shade when needed to keep the building at a perfect temperature.  On cooler days, with the doors partly or completely closed, the advanced glass technology (insulated to Passivhaus requirements) and climate control systems maintain the interior at the same level of year-round comfort.  This is a real room, with no compromises made for its garden location. 

At the heart of these custom designed buildings are pioneering roof and door systems built for The Caulfield Company by Solarlux, the specialist German company which fabricates for architects such as Norman Foster.  Technically these systems offer not only the highest possible strength, noise cancelling and thermal values but also the ability to create spectacular structures including designs where the doors fold entirely away, leaving no beams or columns to interrupt garden sightlines.   

The Caulfield Company handles projects right through from planning permission to design, build and interior finishes. It’s interior design service includes bespoke joinery made in its own workshops, integrated entertainment systems, timber and stone floors and contemporary furniture.  Mark Caulfield and his team of architects and craftsmen undertake projects all over the world.

Available to buy online the London Basin Company offers basins in a wide variety of designs. Every basin is a one-off, hand finished and generously sized; with dimensions running between 39.7 and 45cm in diameter and 14 to 16.2cm in height.

The new ‘Ashburn’ cast iron bath is a compact freestanding roll top, based on 18th Century ‘bateau’ bath designs. 

A great fit for smaller spaces, it offers all the comforts of a classic double ended design, with traditional ball & claw feet making it every bit as grand as its larger cousins in Drummonds’ cast iron bath collection.

It takes Drummonds several weeks to make a single bath; a traditional process involving casting the raw metal, shot-blasting and enamelling with the lengthy dry-frit process which gives a snow white, incredibly durable enamel surface.

Dimensions: L1500 x W730 x H630mm

Finishes:  To order, with four bespoke finish options; painted, polished (as shown here), primed or raw metal.

Martin Moore’s new Muswell Hill showroom has a fresh, modern feel which is perfectly in tune with its urban location. 

Effortlessly bridging classic and contemporary, the refined detailing in their furniture sets strong horizontals and verticals against a palette of warm neutrals. New emphasis is placed on materials, texture and the considered placement of colour, with retro/modern decorative elements including ribbed glass, smoked mirror glass and soft velvets in jewel colours.  Metals too are restrained: Honed, brushed, gleaming with luxury but never ostentatious. 

Kitchens are not just about the way things work and the ergonomics of efficiency.  They are also about the way we want them to look and feel.  There is sensory delight in these designs, creating great spaces to spend time alone or surrounded by friends and family.  Every Martin Moore kitchen is individually designed and built to order, producing highly functional spaces with the generous authenticity of real furniture and real craftsmanship.


The New Deco Kitchen

The New Deco Kitchen draws inspiration from the architects and craftsmen of the 1930s, but everything about this design is innovative; from ‘floating’ freestanding pieces to clever shadow-lines in the cabinetry.  The concept also focuses on the use of feature materials, including book-matched marble, plain and decorative limestone, metallics and veneered timbers. 

Throughout this highly sophisticated kitchen, texture offers both visual and tactile pleasure.  Mixed metals too, from brushed brass to stainless steel, bring yet another level of interest when set against the palette of simple neutrals.

The English Kitchen

Inspired by the neo-classical architect Inigo Jones, this concept derives from the classic proportions and features of English period furniture.

Muswell Hill sees Martin Moore pushing this much-loved design even further, bringing in modern elements such as plain, white metro tiles, ribbed glass in cupboard doors and, in the dining area, lush velvet banquettes framing a Martin Moore smoked glass and oak table. Specially commissioned glass pendant lights bring pops of rich colour.

The New Classic Kitchen

The New Classic Kitchen has long provenance in Martin Moore’s history and carries a sense of tradition and permanence.  

It’s a grand kitchen, but a thoroughly modern one too, with period proportions refined and adapted to embrace modern technology and zoning.  This includes the spacious walk-in larder which provides ambient storage but could also be designed as a wine store or cold room.

The Architectural Kitchen 

Combining English Oak with handpainted furniture, the Architectural Kitchen has notably long elevations and rows of overhead lockers.   

As with all Martin Moore designs, this is real furniture, designed and built to order. The panelling of the doors requires exceptional craftsmanship in its construction - especially when highlighted with chrome inlays, as in the Muswell Hill showroom.  These bring yet another level of subtle glamour to this collection.

Martin Moore, who celebrate their 43rd anniversary this year, were one of the very first handmade kitchen companies.  In the early days, they built their kitchens from reclaimed timbers, but soon began to develop their own hallmark style of classic, timeless, English furniture, designed and made to order with a quality which transcends fashion. 

Still family run, Martin Moore work across the UK and Europe, designing and building bespoke wooden kitchens, utility rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, dressing rooms and freestanding furniture.

Everything is solidly, traditionally, custom-built in Martin Moore’s Yorkshire workshops and they undertake the entire installation, including fitting, painting and worktops.  They have their own stone company, Martin Moore Stone, and mix their own paints.  This end-to-end approach allows Martin Moore to install rapidly and efficiently… and to give a lifetime guarantee.

Lapicida is increasingly adding hi-tech options to its range, partnering its famous natural stone and marble collections with state of the art materials for walls and floors.  The newest introduction is the Cosentino collection of Silestone® and Dekton® large format flooring and cladding tiles.

Exclusive to Lapicida in the UK, these tiles offer a wealth of contemporary design opportunities, including the chance to perfectly match floors and walls to worktops, a great look for kitchens and bathrooms which is becoming increasingly on trend.    

Both materials are based on natural stone and manufactured using processes which make them exceptionally dense, durable, hygienic and resistant to scratching, staining and other wear and tear.  They can also be directly matched to Silestone® and Dekton® worktops (the market leaders in quartz and sintered stone), available from leading kitchen studios. 


Shown above:   Floor tiles and island cladding in Silestone® ‘Iconic White’ shows the sleek, architectural finish achieved by matching the floor tiles to the cladding of the island.  Silestone® is made of 90% natural quartz and Lapicida supplies the wall and floor tiles in 60 different colours and three finishes, with a wide range of tile sizes (up to 600 x 600mm) and thicknesses.


Dekton® combines quartz, glass and porcelain in a unique ‘sintering’ process which mimics the metamorphic process of natural stone, rendering it extremely hard-wearing, scratch resistant and low-maintenance.  Dekton® wall and floor tiles are available from Lapicida in more than 30 colourways and a wide range of tile sizes (up to 1570 x 1400mm) and thicknesses.
